Kenai man indicted for possession of child porn

A man facing kidnapping and assault charges was indicted for possession of child pornography in Kenai Superior Court last week.

Joshua S. Tisdale, 25, faces 10 felony counts for allegedly knowingly possessing or accessing pornographic images and videos of children under the age of 18, with intent to view material, according to an April 18 indictment filed with the court.

Tisdale is also facing charges in a separate case related to an alleged confrontation over stolen drugs at a hotel room in Soldotna. During the incident, which took place Jan. 30 at the Duck Inn, several people were allegedly held hostage at knifepoint, a room ransacked and a vehicle stolen.

Tisdale is one of five people charged in the case. Rachelle B. Brown, 27, Robert Charles Dedrick, 31, Clinton D. Starnes, 28, and Rudy Bongolan, 44, also face multiple felony counts related to the altercation.

Tisdale is accused of being present in the hotel room during parts of the incident and ditching a vehicle stolen that day. He was indicted in March on charges of felony kidnapping, robbery, burglary, assault and vehicle theft.

Tisdale’s arraignment in the latest case is scheduled for May 1.
